I am seriously considering selling a pair of Opal Mens socks that I knit. They were "Lucky Interview Socks" that I made for my husband...and they were so lucky that he got hired without an interview. (no kidding)
How much do you think I could get for those bad boys? They have a nice slip stitch cable ribbing.
No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.
Great Scott,Ya'll!!!!!! I never thought of trying to sell UNFINSHED socks on eBay! I thought maybe I could make whole PAIRS and GIVE them for Christmas gifts and they might seem like something special. Gee, bummer!! I could have paid $42.00 for and Un- finished pair + yarn and given them to my brother instead!! Maybe he could have figured out how to knit and then we could knit together! (Smacks forhead)
I'm Bluebird49 at Ravelry!!
OTN--Just socks right now. Not good at more than 1 thing at a time!
She has sold other half finished items as well. I kind of looked her feedback up to see if this was something that was done often.... there were at least two other ones, then I quit looking. Wow, to get money back for a project that you never finished. I never thought about that before. She did not make as much though on the unfinished sweater as she did on the pair of socks. Wow, I still can't get over that one!
It just occurred to me that maybe she sells these things to people who want to look crafty without the work! When company's coming, you put out the good china and happen to leave the unfinished socks on the coffee table. Wow, isn't everyone impressed! :rollseyes:
Either that or maybe she just HATES doing any finishing!
She gets the fun of doing most of the knitting and somone else gets to pay for the chore of doing the finishing (and she makes enough money to buy more yarn and do it again).
